Suspects Arrested After Trying To Dismantle Antique Farm Equipment

Two people suspected of trying to dismantle antique farm equipment to steal the metal are under arrest after crashing their SUV when Martin County Deputies started chasing them.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office says Montreal Williams and Michelle Pittman were suspected in a metal theft that was going on on NC Highway 903 near Roy Beach Road.

A description of their vehicle was given out and was spotted traveling North on NC Highway 125 at a high rate of speed. Deputies began to pursue the vehicle and it crashed in a ditch. Two small children were also inside.

The investigation determined that Williams and Pittman were dismantling an antique piece of farm equipment. The estimated amount of loss was $2,000.

Williams and Pittman were both arrested and charged with felony larceny.

    Just another example of why drugs should be on every street corner. Give these crack heads what they want. It will keep them from having to steal from hard working folks. Put pure cocaine in 55 gallon drums on every street corner let them have all they want. Once it is free they want have to do $ 5000.00 dollars worth of damage to get 5 dollars worth of metal. Give it to them let them overdose and be done with the lazy no good bunch.
